    Background

    Why Children? Children are psychologically vulnerable and may develop post-traumatic stress disorder or related symptoms; are physically vulnerable to death, injury, illness, and abuse; and often experience disruptions or delays in their educational progress as a result of disasters. Children also have the capacity to contribute to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities. In order to promote childrens resilience to disasters, we must improve their access to resources, empower them by encouraging their participation, offer support, and ensure equitable treatment.1

    Child-focused DRR approach aims to

    At the end of the existing projects, the children in the targeted areas is projected to have a better understanding about the disaster risks within their areas and be the change agents to their peers (peer educator) as well as to the rest of the community where they live.

    The approach comprises of the following components:

    - Child participation

    - Awareness raising

    - Disaster simulation exercises

    Added value for the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction How did your work support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework

    for Action: By giving the opportunity for children to involve and participate (Children Forum) in

    disaster preparedness, the approach used and done through the projects has contributed to priority action 5 of the HFA.

    Some of the children forum/groups have even managed to advocate their village government/elders to allocate more funds to disaster preparedness.

    School-based disaster risk management implemented in the projects has raised the awareness and sensitivity of disaster risks not only for the students but also for the teachers (priority action 3).

    Further steps to be addressed in the Post 2015 Framework for a Child-focused Disaster Risk Reduction implementation. Institutionalize participation of children in community and school based disaster

    risk management, including trainings, disaster simulation exercises and other preparedness measures.

    Establish mechanisms where children can engage local government authorities and community associations and access relevant information, as well as share their knowledge to community members to contribute to awareness raising on DRR.
